LG KG800 Numeric Keypad Backlit??

Hi, I have had my chocholate (LG KG800) for 16 mths now, and just read in a forum, that the numeric keys are backlit! Is this true, as I have NEVER had my numeric keypad backlit, EVER! This has been a real pain when trying to place a call in dimly lit places or the dark. The phone was sent into a repair centre on a different warrantee matter, but it still was not backlit when it was returned to me. Can you please clarify. Cheers, Jules

Re: LG KG800 Numeric Keypad Backlit??

I sent an email to lg´s customer service and the cleaver guy told me that the Chocolate doesn´t come with the backlight keypad. Lie! Mine didn´t work until one day messing around with it I manage to turn it on!! then i got myself into the beach...with my cell in my pocket. I put it in some dry rice (don´t know if you know this solution) for a couple of days and I got it back to work (rice absorbs all of the water from the cellphone). Now I needed to re-configure my LG and I can´t make the backlight to work anymore.
I´ll let you know of any progress.

Go to the power saving and turn it off, they might work then. Mine did for three days and then they went off again!!

Yes they are backlit but they light is very dim, If i slide mine open and wait for the screen to turn off then I can only slightly see the backlight going off, might just be a problem with mine to though :P

How to lock or unlock a Samsung Intensity

Many people like the Samsung Intensity because of its slide-out QWERTY keyboard. However, one drawback to the phone for some users is that, unlike a flip phone, the numeric keypad is always exposed. When the Intensity is kept in a pocket or purse, this can result in accidental phone calls, multiple all-black pictures, and sudden activation of the voice command feature.

Luckily, you can lock the phone's keypad to keep it from engaging any functions when you're not using it. Locking the keypad is easy. Just hold down the 0 (zero) button for about two seconds, and a message will pop up telling you that the keypad has been locked. While it's locked, you won't be able to use the numeric keypad.

The standard way to unlock the phone is to press the upper right options button (the one that you would typically press to bring up your Contacts list) and then press the center OK button. (You will see prompts for both of these buttons when the phone is locked.)

However, there is also a quicker way to unlock the phone -- just slide the keyboard open. Sliding the keyboard open will unlock your numeric keypad immediately, and even when you close the keyboard the phone will remain unlocked. If you want to lock it again, you'll have to hold down the zero button to re-lock it.

You can also enable Auto Key Lock mode, in case you think you'll forget to lock your phone. With Auto Key Lock mode turned on, your phone will automatically lock itself when it's not in use and the backlight goes off. You can turn Auto Key Lock mode on or off from the Phone Settings menu.

My LG Chocolate KG800 won't turn on! it charges but it won't turn on!! what can I do to fix that??

Probably, you have cut the membrane that is there below the keypad and cant connect the power on switch. Remove the front cover and then the keypad and you will find the membrane there. Replace it.
